Now that a day's passed and we can clearly reflect on the fact that the Blues are out of the playoffs, well, what happened?
The Blues' season draws to a close despite some excellent post-season defensive play.
Tonight is the ultimate in do or die hockey, at least until game seven. There's going to be a game seven, right guys?
This is do or die time for the Blues, who are winless in LA in their past two seasons, playoffs included.
This stream has:
You all probably already know what this is going to say.
Panic buttons? Shitting the Bed? And the good old F-word. These are all great adjectives that explain the St. Louis Blues right now.
Hopefully tonight won't be the last home game of the season for the Blues; there's no doubt about it - they have to win.
It's been a while since any of us can remember home ice advantage mattering so much in a series.
Special thanks to Game Time contributor Artie Clark for this post. Everything contained within is all his. Oh, and Battle of Cali? Here're some for your f-bomb count.
The Blues have been beneficiaries of both and a victim of one of the above during this playoff series.
Instead of a chance to close it out tonight, the Blues need to win two of the next three games to advance to round two. It seems easier said than done.
That was, hands down, the worst Blues game since their loss in Colorado last month. What happened?
Barret Jackman speaks for us all.
Vladimir Tarasenko is back and Adam Cracknell has been un-released for tonight's game.
Funny, isn't it, how one loss can turn the dynamic of a playoff series.
It's Beardy Time Again!
I know for a fact that most of you out there have some sort of playoff superstitions you'd like to share.
Tonight went into a must-win situation pretty quickly for the Blues. Scoring would go a long ways to helping that happen.
The Blues squandered a quality performance by Brian Elliott, and could be in danger of squandering a 2-0 series lead.
Tonight's the night that the Blues can force the Kings to overcome history and a 3-0 deficit. Play tough hockey, boys, but play it smart.
The Blues need to tighten things up and not cave in to the Kings' pressure if they want to win tonight in LA. Oh, and they also need to score probably more than two goals.
The Blues head into Los Angeles with a 2-0 series lead. Will they continue their strong road play and add to it?
Time for some more big hits, solid goaltending, and Blues momentum building.
The Blues will have to keep their endurance up against the Kings if they want to go to LA leading two games to none.
Lighting the Lamp will run in both the Game Time newspaper as well as on the site every playoff home game.
The Kings won't be as sluggish as they were on Tuesday night; will the Blues be able to keep the momentum on their side?
Fan Made Because It's The Cup TV Spot
The Kings goaltender had an excellent game, stopping 40 of 42 shots. The last shot was a game killer, though.
The Blues play a full 59 and a half minutes of hockey, but one moment of inattentiveness leads to necessary overtime heroics.
